  • How is the camera attached to the front? As I understand it, the the tip is always "replaced" by the next part of the inside tube. So how is the camera kept on the front?

  • This could help in nature conservation and wild life management. For instance, using the robot to lift a beached whale from off the sand can make it easier to move back into the sea. Or the darting of a large mammal such as an elephant in the middle of nowhere ( where time is crutial).

  • This doubt has blown my mind hard.... Plz answer me😩 As we all know, in transverse and longitudinal waves, the medium it self dosen't moves forward, it just moves back-forth /up-down and energy travels through these waves. And this energy is transfered by the above mentioned specefic movement of particles of medium. Now, The question is, to "move" the particles of medium in that way, Some energy is must required. So, dose that means the energy traveling through a wave gose on decreasing slowly? And one thing more, what is the state of this energy which is travelling through the wave and moving through the particles of the medium? of Course it is not solid, fluid, plasma. It Seems similar to gaseous state. So, is energy a gas without any molecular structure? In Dominoes game, when we apply force or give energy to the first Dominoe, it falls on other dominoe and transfers that energy to it. 2nd dominoe falls on 3rd, 3rd falls on 4th and so on. We see the transfere of energy. But we what actually we See is the effect or the work done by energy, we don't see "energy". So, How dose "pure energy" looks like?. We can fill a tank with pure oxygen, can we fill a tank with pure energy?

  • I understand that this is kind of a laucher video... and concept is cool. I can think of a few uses. Main one would be a weapon to disperse gas. Could be in a building or a mob of people. The recon aspect is awesome, it'll be cool if it can sustain itself longer without an air compressor. Second is on a larger scale... playing with the push some, could be used for some kind of airlock or exploration. Third, collecting water from a stream for camping, or collecting oxygen from plankton in the ocean.

  • Do Photons Have Mass? YES... I Sincerely Beg You To PROVE ME WRONG! ... and the Answer To The Universe Is -42 !!! The Mass of a Photon is Given by: m = (h/cλ) (kg) where, m = mass of a single photon c = speed of light, λ = wavelength of photon “Bozeon Constant” b is as follows: b = h/c (kg m) b =6.62607004x10^(-34) (kg m^2/s) / (299792458) (m/s) b = 2.210219x10^(-42) (kg m) The Mass of a Photon Is: m = b/λ (kg) or, m = 2.210219x10^(-42) / λ (kg) A typical Red photon with a wavelength of 700nm has the following mass: m = 2.210219x10^(-42) (kg m) / 7x10^(-7) (m) Mass of a 700 nm Red Photon: m = 3.1574557x10^(-36) (kg ) PROVE ME WRONG OR… Join The TTOE Team At BRAVE and Help Save Physics From Those With Warped Spacetime Minds: @BozeonResearchAndAEtherVerificationEtaireia Notes To Aid Understanding of what EM Dipoles Particles Are … The “Bozeon constant” “b” converts photon wavelength into the sum of all the masses of the “bozeons” or “God particles” that form the “quantum superfluid” in all particles. “Bozeon” is Polish for “God Particle”, the ethnicity of the Conceivor of EM Kinetic Dipole Theory, aka The Theory of Everything. There are trillions upon trillions of dipoles in a single photon. (more on the exact number later). Everything including all elementary particles are made of complex flows of EM Kinetic Dipoles. A Kinetic Dipole is a somewhat symmetric particle with one end that has more mass than the other. Bozeon’s are Electromagnetic Kinetic Dipole Particles that form the EM field. For better understanding you can pretend for now that the Planck Length is the RMS distance between kinetically colliding EM Dipoles (“Bozeons”). You can also pretend that the “size” of a EM Dipole is about 10^(-42) meters in length. The Dipole Mass Density Gradient in Vacuum determines the local force of gravity. Big “G” simply converts Dipole Mass Density Gradients into Acceleration. All forces EM, Gravity, Weak, Strong, are all calculated from the momentum transfers between kinetic collisions of these EM Dipole Particles. EM Dipoles in Vacuum are in a gaseous state and the “quantum superfluid” in all particles is liquefied EM Fields and are technically a Bose-Einstein Condensate of EM Kinetic Dipole Particles. Black holes are supersolids of EM Dipole Particles. Copyright 2021 John E. Boze
